I agree with this for the most part. The thing I didn't understand v. RI was why did Mike finally go to this lineup when we were down 6 or more in the closing minutes in desperate need of 3 point shooting??? At that point, Corey and MSS on the court together didn't make any sense.
I'm guessing 2nd chance points off rebounds

I was hoping he would let Corey shoot a three...he was not being followed out to arc...he got the ball top of the key ( where he has pulled the trigger from before) all alone and never looked at the basket...turned it over instead

No but IV took two wide open shots and bricked both. SMH....

When I posed the question a few weeks ago on how long before Bones starts, I had no idea who he would replace or when but it has come sooner than I expected, mainly because he has adapted so well to the speed of D 1 ball. He is on the verge of dominating a game real soon. COOL KAT!

I want to remain positive about this team, but something seems off to me.
Could it be that the other teams are better? The other teams execute their offense better? They are prepared to defend a VCU squad that hasn’t adjusted?
Could it be that this team is not as good as we thought it should be? The players are giving it everything they have, so if it isn’t working we need to make some changes. Anything to rattle the mental blocks, both players and coaches. Have we become a one trick pony?
I’ve not played at any level but I understand process. On offense we are not moving. Too much standing around waiting on someone else to make it happen. Change the rules. Next game no 3 shots. Only elbow in. Challenge the players in different ways. It’s more than shots not falling. Right now it seems to be chemistry and maybe coaching. One or both.

You posters who have played have ideas about what needs to be done. Coach has email. Send them in.

Simms, Curry and Williams are a combine 1 for 26 in our last two loses. I'm going to Email Mike and ask him to have our players make more baskets
Great idea Ramdog! I’m sure Mike will appreciate your insightful suggestion, just as he does all the other recommendations he receives from this board😄
